Modern English Announce “After the Snow” 40th Anniversary North American Tour Dates for 2022

Twice thwarted by the global pandemic, Modern English have now announced a new itinerary for their North American After the Snow tour where the classic 4AD post-punk will perform the 1982 album in full, just in time for its 40th anniversary.

Initially, the tour was scheduled for 2020, but instead of hitting the road throughout the US and Canada, the band recorded a lockdown version of the album’s hit single “I Melt With You”.

Like most international touring bands, 2021 was too much of a risk to undertake, resulting in a second cancellation of dates, but now the band are finally ready to embark on their tour come in several legs throughout next year, beginning in March.

Modern English’s first live date across the Atlantic in 2022 is set to begin on March 5th in Port Canaveral, FL for the ’80s Cruise, with The Human League, Berlin, ABC, Belinda Carlisle, Morris Day & the Times, A Flock of Seagulls, and more.

The After the Snow tour’s first leg runs through Florida, and the southwest throughout March, with a pause until June.

The second leg begins in Portland on June 8th, running through cities on the west coast, with a stop at The Echo in Los Angeles on June 19th, before heading to Colorado, and circle back through the Midwest.

East Coast dates being in September, including stops at Asbury Park’s Asbury Lanes on September 8th NYC’s Sony Hall on the 13th, and three nights in West Springfield, MA at The Big E on the 16th.
